What Will you Learn in our TAE Course?

By the time you finish your Cert IV TAE with Inspire Education, you will have a sound understanding of the Australian Vocational Education and Training (VET) industry and training packages.

You will also develop all key areas of Training and Assessment including design, delivery, and assessment. You will learn to design learning programs, deliver and assess training in one-on-one and group settings, and participate in assessment validation.

Course Outline & Structure

Inspire Education has adopted a “clustered” approach for all of our Certificate IV in Training and Assessment courses. This means we have divided our courses into just three workbooks: design; delivery; and assessment (instead of 10 separate units). This means you will have only three workbooks to submit to complete your course! By using this “holistic” approach our students are able to study at a good pace because information is not duplicated.

Recommended Study Hours:  This course has 610 expected study hours. We recommend approximately 12 hours of study per week for students in the 12 month self-paced online course; however you may work at your own pace and complete your course faster if you’d like!

Assessment Methods:  Assessment is conducted using a combination of written questions and activities, problem solving scenarios, and projects to give you maximum opportunity to develop your knowledge in training and assessment.

TAE40110 Course units

The current TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is comprised of 10 course units, including 7 core units PLUS 3 elective units. We have organised the following units into three major areas of TAE: Design, Delivery, and Assessment.

Upcoming industry changes will see the TAELLN411 – Address Adult Language, Literacy, and Numeracy Skills unit included in the new (yet to be released) Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

Right now, you can add the TAELLN411 to your Certificate IV TAE for an additional fee and be ready for the upcoming changes.
